Coulter’s Resistance Is Futile has just been released. Here are a few observations.
What Coulter Gets Right
This quote encapsulates what is right in Coulter’s book:
“Nothing the Russians ever dreamed of could compare to what the Resistance is doing to democracy, obliterating the will of Trump voters, who wanted him to get to work on urgent problems.”
“It is nothing less than a coup.”
Trump Derangement Syndrome grows daily and hourly, exposing every segment of the Progressive movement for what it is, from politics, to academia, to Hollywood, and the – now blatantly out in the open – #FakeNewsMedia.
Other books have recently (or will soon be) released which tell the very same story.
What Coulter Gets Wrong
Coulter ludicrously contends that the Left hates Donald Trump because he is “icky” – that he is a departure from the debonair and erudite Barack Obama. This is hogwash. If Trump pursued Progressive policies, they would love him.
Far from being squeamish about “icky,” the Left embraces it. Witness Harvey Weinstein, Kathy Griffin, so many of the presenters and awardees at Hollywood events, the Ann Coulter Roast, etc. Remember Michelle Wolf at the National Correspondents Dinner? Truly icky!
Ickiness is part of the Left’s DNA. They merely use charges of ickiness to attack Trump and try to peel off some portion of Middle American support for him.
Icky does not matter to the Left. It didn’t in the 1960s and it doesn’t now. The Left was enthralled with the Clinton presidency. Even now, they want Hillary back. (Ick!)
Throughout her media career, Coulter has conflated style with substance (often preferring the former to the latter) and she continues to do so to this day.
What the Left hates about Trump is his devotion to America, his erasure of the Obama legacy, his opposition to the Progressive agenda and identity politics, and his Making America Great Again.
But the Left can’t say that, so, instead, it says, “Ick!”
Trump stands up for America, not against her. (That is what the Left considers the real “Ick!”)
